Winner of the photo album contest of the month Jul 2008

  Start slide show:
album of the month contest Of all the experiences we had in Egypt, the most moving were the two nights we spent camping on the Sahara Desert. The landscape of the Desert changes both like and with the wind. It is hard to imagine the geology that produces such a varied landscape but its beauty is unsurpassed. We camped where ever our Land Cruiser stopped, without a tent but using a simple two walled windbreak. If you look closely at our campsite pics, you will notice that the surface outside the windbreak is unbroken ripples, the result of the constantly moving sand. Our meals were simple Bedouin fare as were our beds - mats covered by sleeping bags that we never got into. The temperature hit a high of 51c but dropped to 41c at night. No need for lanterns; we were blessed with a full moon and ample stars. Animals came and went, including our Momma fox and her pups. It all made for an unforgettable experience!
